Unleashing potential through strong communities

Spark believes it has a big part to play in creating a better New Zealand, so we look for ways to partner with key community groups to help New Zealanders win big in a digital world.

Spark Lab 

Spark’s purpose is to help all of New Zealand win big in a digital world. One of the ways we do this is through Spark Lab, a multiplatform thought leadership programme designed to give New Zealand businesses the support and resources to achieve their goals. The programme provides customers and non-customers alike with videos, articles, events and digital business tools through sparklab.co.nz delivered by key leaders. New Zealand’s leading business thinkers and technologists also speak at Spark Lab events, which are often livestreamed to reach an even wider audience. In FY18 Spark Lab had 10 events with local and international speakers, including Hector Ouilhet from Google, Ana Arriola from Facebook and Erik Klimcza from Uber. We also produced and distributed 30 videos featuring business leaders including Frances Valentine, Wendy Thompson and James Kemp. We also launched Start Social for Spark customers and facilitate a growing Facebook community group where over 3,500K business owners share ideas and advice.
